What's this?

You’ve got to try this specialty cut from a full ribeye roast. The cap portion of a ribeye features exquisite marbling that results in a tender steak that melts in your mouth like butter.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound Ribeye Cap

  • 2 Tablespoon Traeger Coffee Rub

  • 2 Tablespoon Traeger Beef Rub

Steps

  • 1

    Trim the rib eye cap of excess silverskin and fat, if needed. Cut the cap into 4 equal portions and roll into steaks. Tie with butchers twine to secure.
  • 2

    In a small bowl, combine both rubs. Season the steaks liberally with the rub mixture and set aside while the grill heats up.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, set Traeger to 225˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 4

    Place the steaks directly on the grill grate, and smoke for 30-45 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 120˚F.
  • 5

    Remove from the grill and set aside to rest.

    Increase the grill temperature to 450˚F.
  • 7

    Place the steaks directly on the grill grate and cook 3-4 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 130˚F.
